DNS point to another domain

Hello, I am trying to follow the following instructions, but I cant get it to work

Step 1 - Create CNAME Record

Log into your domain provider's site, and head over to the Zone File Settings, DNS Manager, or a similar area like that. Then, you will create a CNAME record that points your domain to Pixieset. You'll typically see the following fields:

Alias - This should be a subdomain like "client" (or "proofing", "gallery", whichever you prefer - pointing client.yourdomain.com to Pixieset), or "www" (pointing www.yourdomain.com to Pixieset). If you want to enable root domain mapping (e.g. yoursite.com), you can follow the instructions at the bottom of this page.

Type - Choose CNAME for this

Points To - Enter domain.pixieset.com (enter exactly as shown bolded, DO NOT replace domain with anything!) 

Correct: domain.pixieset.com

I want the domain to be client.philippberndt.no

  • After the dns was set. You must add webserver (Apache or Nginx) configuration where the subdomain going to read the web file (index.html, index.php).

    if you are using Apache, you can add new VirtualHost. If you are using Nginx, you can add new site located at /etc/nginx/sites-available/

    Thanks
